I don't recall that James Madison was any of those things. As for corporations, your definition of a corporation was completely different than those that existed in the Early Republic. For one, there weren't that many of them and when they did exist, they were more like joint stock companies rather than a formal corporation, with chains of command, etc, that started in the late 19th century.

It must always be fought for, by political coalitions that cut across distinctions of wealth, power, and interest. It succeeds and survives only when it is rooted in the lives and expectations of its citizens, and continually reinvigorated in each generation." -Sean Wilentz Thomas Bockhorn email@example.com
